Had amazing SSI Advanced Adventurer course here! My instructor, Marie, was very helpful with the paperwork and both very professional and great at explaining throughout the whole course. Another instructor, Didi (went diving with him on night dive), was also great and the best thing is they're both very patience with their students. I also remember having a great communication with Mrs. Suci when I asked about the course and she was very helpful with my last minute request. Also, they take good care of their equipments, my dive gears worked perfectly. The only thing they need to improve in my opinion, is the food. It's clean and well prepared but it Overall, I have great experience diving with them and recommend Matahari Tulamben if you wanted to dive in Tulamben.

I was traveling solo and did my AOW with the dive center and the experience is good. I have to say I am not a fan of shore dive especially with rocky surface shore but the USAT wreck was worth all the effort. The cafe speed might be a little slow, and I had to wait over than an hour for my lunch to be served once, but I guess when you are at such a laid back place, you ought to be a little chill.

We have nothing but sweet memories with Matahari Tulamben. First time I dive was in 2012. Then I brought my pregnant wife. Second time was 2015, then with my two years daughter. I was able to convince my wife to take open water course. And the instructor. Didik was attentive, patient and helpful to guide my wife to finish her open water certification. The place is nice, serene, and the beach diving is simply amazing. The wreck is out of this world experience. We are now living in Malaysia for the past two years, but this place will be definitely the first destination when the lockdown is over.

Answer these questions: Are you a diver? Need a dive holiday in Bali? Or, do you want to become a diver or want to try it? Sick of temperate water diving and feel the need to dive in water ranging from 27*C - 30*C? Like kitting up at your resort and being right at a great dive site or within walking distance of several? Do you love taking underwater photos of really small creatures? Then if you've ticked any of these boxes Matahari Tulamben Dive Center is a great place to visit. Ok, I'm a diver of 40 years, instructor and amateur underwater photographer. I've dived all over South East Asia as well as other places, however this is my #1 port of call before heading off to other locations. For chilling out, diving, meeting great people from all over the world and having an excellent time mixing with all the brilliant staff, especially the dive masters, this place is just a haven. The DM's/ guides are always happy, want you to have the best experience, are excellent divers, can spot a 5mm nudibranch from metres away or know exactly where that pair of harlequin shrimp are. They are just classic guys and a pleasure to dive with!! If you are thinking of taking up diving then Marie and Di Di, the SSI Instructors will have you diving like a pro in no time at all. Pricing on guided dives I've found is very good value for money with gear included. The equipment is in reasonably good condition so no worries if your space poor with baggage. If anything I would suggest the more personal stuff like computer, mask maybe fins, camera obviously but other than that you're good to go. Tulamben is not only world renowned for having a wreck well within 'open water cert' depths but also for it's diversity in macro sea life. It is up there with Dauin- Philippines and Lembeh Straight- North Sulawesi for macro. Ok if your not into underwater photography but like to dive a stay of around 3-5 days wil be enough and you'd be looking for other places. I'm a bit bias towards Matahari but if something is good I like to tell people about it. Hope you enjoy the place as much as I do!
